幸せのあしあと ハッピー!

October 18, 2009

Whee! The little survey over at A Noodle in a Haystack has been floating around the classic film blogosphere lately, and it looked pretty fun. So I’m doing it here. :3

it's magical! it's super! it's gwtw

1. What is your all-time favorite Clark Gable movie? Gone With the Wind! My love for that movie knows no bounds.

2. Do you like Joan Crawford best as a comedienne or a drama-queen? Most definitely drama queen. The only comedy I’ve seen of hers, Love on the Run, was like a bad version It Happened One Night. But I probably just need to see more of her comedies. Anyways, I consider her dramas to be winrars~~ ^^ Mildred Pierce is one of my favorite movies ever.

3. In your opinion, should Ginger Rogers have made more musicals post-Fred Astaire? Mmm…maybe. I like her post-Fred non-musicals enough that it doesn’t really make a difference to me.

4. I promise not to cause you bodily (or any other serious) harm if you don’t agree with me on this one. So please be honest: do you like Elizabeth Taylor? Hm? Yes! She’s adorable. I love reading her twitter.

5. Who is your favorite offscreen Hollywood couple? I would ~typically~ say Bogart and Bacall, but lately, they have become my second-favorite. Thanks, Clark and Carole! XD
JS15678206. How about onscreen Hollywood couple? Bill Powell and Myrna Loy! Their chemistry was PERFECT.

7. Favorite Jean Arthur movie? You Can’t Take It With You – even though every time I watch it, I get super jealous of Jean, especially in this scene. ILY SO MUCH JIMMY.

8. What was the first Gregory Peck movie you saw? To Kill a Mockingbird. That movie and I, we go way back.

9. What film made you fall in love with Alfred Hitchcock? (And for those of you that say, “I don’t like Hitchcock” — what is wrong with you?!) Are there really people out there that don’t like Hitchcock? D:< Anyways, to answer the question, Notorious .

10. What is your favorite book-to-movie adaption? See question #1.

11. Do you prefer Shirley Temple as a little girl or as a teenager?
I don’t prefer Shirley Temple! wahaha
12. Favorite character actor? Peter Lorre. That guy is lulzy.

13. Favorite Barbara Stanwyck role? Phyllis Dietrichson in Double Indemnity. I also like the role she plays in Baby Face.

SF17503

14. Who is your favorite of Cary Grant’s leading ladies? Ingy Ingy Ingy Ingy Ingy! Oh and um Katharine Hepburn.

15. Bette Davis or Joan Crawford? What a cliche question! 哈哈哈哈 Sorry. But I like them both D: Can I choose both?

16. What actors and/or actresses do you think are underrated? Olivia de Havilland. Greer Garson. Aww.

17. What actors and/or actresses do you think are overrated? MARILYN MONROE. Blaaah! I see her face everywhere!  And it sort of upsets me that she gets so much attention when there are undoubtedly better classic actresses out there… So basically, you can throw James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Audrey Hepburn into that same category. (Although I like Audrey. *points to header*)

18. Do you watch movies made pre-1980 exclusively, or do you spice up your viewing-fare with newer films? I like pre-1960 movies ONLY!
19. Is there an actor/actress who you have seen in a film and immediately loved? If so, who? Bogart and Bacall in The Big Sleep. They made me love old movies. <3 Oh and um William Powell in The Thin Man. (I already loved Minnie. ^^)

20. Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire? I always feel bad for Gene because more people say Fred.
But Fred.

21. Favorite Ginger Rogers drama? Kitty Foyle. ♥
all smiles~~~
22. If you wrote a screenplay, who would be in your dream cast and what roles would they play? (Mixing actors and actresses from different generations is allowed: any person from any point in their career.) Oooh fun XD. Well, I’d love for Ginger Rogers and Jimmy Stewart to make another movie together, preferably a comedy with really funny dialogue and a sweet ending. Some sort of office romance?

23. Favorite actress? Aaaah so difficult to choose one! My favorites change all the time. Right now, though, it’s Ingrid Bergman (my number one forever~), Hedy Lamarr, and Carole Lombard~
this is all i need
25. Favorite actor?Again, why must “actor” be singular? D: Well my favorite of all time is Cary Grant, but right now, I’m loving Robert Taylor and Clark Gable as well~

26. And now, the last question. What is your favorite movie from each of these genres:
Drama: YE GODS, HOW SHALL I EVER CHOOSE?
Now, Voyager. ^____________^
Romance: Gone With teh Wind. Again!
Musical: Top Hat and Wizard of Oz
Comedy: It Happened One Night
Western: Ew, westerns.
Hitchcock (he has a genre all to himself): Notorious, North by Northwest, and Vertigo

Edit: Wow, the spacing on this post is messed up. Sorry about that, minnasan.

That’s what she said
